Yves Liger

23 October 2017

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Although panoramic bar-restaurants abound in Bangkok, not many of them can claim such a special location as Bangkok Heightz, ideally located at Asoke intersection, the nerve center of the capital city. Roosting on the 39th floor of the Continent Hotel, it offers an extraordinary viewpoint onto downtown.

BIRDS of Paradise

Yves Liger

6 October 2017

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]The concept of BIRDS Rotisserie emerged from the will of five French friends who wanted to share with the Thai people, great lovers of chicken, the pleasure that they experienced in their youth when they would bring home a beautiful roast poultry, well done and still hot, accompanied by juicy sauteed small potatoes at the bottom of the bag.
